I was trying to duplicate "Vienna Fingers" we ate growing up. I won't say they taste exactly like them. Nope, but I have to say I think these taste way BETTER. I'm a chocolate person, but these have such an incredible 'nilla flavor, I found them very addictive!!!!
'Nilla Fingers (Wafers)
1 1/4 cup almonds (soaked overnight and peeled, if possible)
1/4 cup macadamia nuts
1/2 cup water (as needed)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 4 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon Lucuma, optional
1/4 cup maple syrup, grade B (or raw honey, not vegan)
1 Tbsp ground flax seed, golden for color
2 Tbsp almond flour (or pulp, but use less water if wet)
pinch sea salt
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, finely ground
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, or 3 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla Extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 - 3 Tbsp water (as needed to thin)
2 Tbsp honey, maple syrup, (or your favorite liquid sweetener) to taste
Blend nuts and water well. Add remaining ingredients and blend until creamy.
Pour onto non-stick dehydrator sheet and spread with offset spatula - about 1/8" thick.
Dehydrate at 110 degrees F for 4 hours.
Flip onto mesh dehydrator tray and peel off non-stick sheet. Score into strips, about 1/2 - 3/4 inch wide and then into finger sized rectangles (equal in size). Option: use a small circle cookie cutter and make rounds.
Dehydrate another 8-10 hours, flipping over again, once. ( may be prepared on lowest oven setting, but will not be raw...and will have to watch for timing).
Vanilla Cream Filling Preparation
Process shredded coconut in a spice or coffee grinder until a fine powder.
Transfer to a bowl and add remaining ingredients, adding only enough water to make spreadable.
Spread small amount of Cream on each cookie and dehydrate for 1hour.
Option: No Cream..just plain wafers are delicious. (See square cookies below).
BEWARE: These are addictive!
